HONORABLE LEROY COLLINS 

Governor of Florida 



STATE OF FLORIDA' 
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE 

FLORIDA'S PUBLIC WELFARE PROGRAM 

FLORIDA'S PUBLIC WELFARE PROGRAM is administered by the State 
Department of Public Welfare, which in turn, is governed by the State Welfare 
Board with twelve District Boards responsible to it on an area basis. The State 
Welfare Board is composed of seven members, appointed by the Governor for 
4 -year overlapping terms and confirmed by the Senate. Members of the District 
Welfare Boards are also appointed by the Governor, two or more from each 
county in the District in proportion to population. The State and District Board 
Members serve without compensation, but are reimbursed for necessary expenses 
incurred in the discharge of official duties. The program is supported by appro- 
priations authorized by the State Legislature and supplemented by Federal funds 
in the event that conditions prescribed by the Social Security Act are complied 
with. These conditions are intended to insure fair and equitable distribution of 
funds, and leave the responsibility of administration entirely with the State. The 
State Welfare Act gives the Department broad responsibilities for caring for 
needy persons and for making and carrying out plans for the permanent rehabili- 
tation of persons in need of care. 



FUNCTIONS OF THE STATE WELFARE BOARD 

The State Welfare Board as the governing body of the State Department of 
Public Welfare exercises the supervisory, regulatory and policy making powers 
of the Department. It is charged with the responsibility of administering, or 
causing to be administered, all social welfare carried on by the use of joint Fed- 
eral and State funds, and may cooperate with counties and cities in administering 
their welfare services. It employs an administrator designated as the State Wel- 
fare Director to carry out its decisions. The District Welfare Boards have a 
supervisory function in twelve districts of the State, with the responsibility of 
supervising the administration within their areas in carrying out the rules, regu- 
lations and policies adopted by the State Board for the Department. The Act 
also gives responsibility to the State Welfare Board, acting through its District 
Boards, to determine the amount of money within the limitations fixed by law 
thai applicants may receive. This amount is determined by { 1 ) the money ap- 
propriated by the Legislature; (2) number of eligibie applicants; '(3) the extent 
of need of each eligible person.

PUBLIC ASSISTANCE 

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 1956, the Public Assistance caseload 
In Florida showed a net increase of 2, 853 cases . The number of recipients re- 
ceivingOld Age Assistance decreased by 247 cases, or 0.36 percent . Recipients 
of Aid to the Blind decreased by 198 cases, or 6.96 percent, while recipients of 
Aid to Dependent Children increased by 273 families, or 1,29 percent. The 
reason for the large total net increase in cases was due to the new program of 
Aid to the Disabled, which showed a net increase of 3,025 cases. This was 
the first year In which the Aid to the Disabled program was operated . 

AID TO THE DISABLBD 

The Legislature, at the 1955 session, approved not only the establishment 
of the Aid to the Disabled program but also sufficient funds to administer it 
adequately . The state plan was then submitted to the United States Department 
of Health, Education, and Welfare in Washington and, with its approval, federal 
funds were released so that the program could begin July 1 , 1955 . During the 
year ended June 1956, 10, 451 applications, or 73 percent of the total .were dis- 
posed of. Of that number 3,329, or 45 percent, were approved for assistance 
and 4,311, or 55 percent, were denied assistance. As of June 30, 1956, there 
were 2, 811 applications for AD pending investigation and determination of eli- 
gibility. This program has been needed for some time in Florida, as is 
evidenced by the large number of applications received during the year. Several 
factors, however, make it a difficult program to administer and, necessarily, 
make for a long period of time between the application and the approval or re- 
jection of the case . This is the only public assistance category in Florida in 
which, by state law. the relatives, if they are able, have a responsibility for 
providing assistance to tie applicant. This involves an investigation of the 
financial status of the relatives in order to determine the eligibility of the 
client. Even though the law specifies only relatives living in Florida, in the 
majority of cases the relatives live in a different town or county from the ap- 
plicant, so that these cases involve not only personal visiting but also 
correspondence , Another time-consuming element is the federal mandatory re- 
quirement that the eligibility factor of permanent and total disabll ity must be 
determined by a state team composed of a doctor and a trained and qualified 
social worker. In addition to the normal delay caused by this feature, the De- 
partment of Public Welfare has not been able to keep current on state team 
decisions because of the difficulty of getting qualified personnel to serve on 
the medical team . 

APPEALS 



The number of appeals for fair hearing has increased markedly during the 
past year, to a great extent because of the AD program . All clients who appeal 
because of their dissatisfaction with the state team's decision on the disability 
factor have their case reviewed by another team in the State Department . As 



these appeals have increased, it has been necessary to use die time of the state 
review teams to handle this aspect of the program, thus reducing the time avail- 
able for the review of new applicants . 

CIVIL DEFENSE 



When the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 
signed an agreement with the federal Civil Defense Administration for the fed- 
eral Public Assistance Bureau to be responsible for providing financial assistance 
and clothing to persons in need as a result of enemy attack, the Florida State 
Welfare Board took similar action in April 1956 . One of the Public Assistance 
consultants was assigned as Civil Defense coordinator and has worked closely 
with the federal, regional, and state representatives in planning policies and 
procedures relating to emergency welfare services In the Civil Defense program . 

HOSPITALIZATION 

One of the greatest unmet needs for public assistance recipients is in the 
area of medical care . Methods and procedures for filling part of this need were 
worked out during January to June 1956, culminating in the plan to provide a 
limited form of hospitalization for all eligible Public Assistance recipients. 
This plan was to be put into effect after the special session of the Florida Leg- 
islature authorized the use of surplus funds for this purpose . 

PUBLIC ASSISTANCE POLICIES 

During this year there were very few changes in Public Assistance policies, 
either in the area of restriction or liberalization. An administrative review, 
made by the Regional Bureau of Public Assistance of the United States Depart- 
ment of Health, Education, and Welfare, pointed out that, while the policies 
were sound and equitable, the State Public Assistance staff was insufficient to 
assure that these policies were carried out uniformly. 

CHILD WELFARE SERVICES 

The Child Welfare Services program includes a variety of activities on be- 
half of children for whom the law gives the Department responsibility for their 
protection, care, and guidance. The program is financed through federal, state, 
and local funds, with parents paying as much of the cost as possible, either 
through direct contributions or through OASI or veteran benefits . 

CHILDREN RECEIVING CARE AND SERVICE FROM THE DEPARTMENT 

At the beginning of the fiscal year, July 1, 1955, the Department had 1,662 
children under care and a total of 6, 61 1 children were under care during the year . 



Services die Department provided for children included: 

Counselling and casework service 

Studying situation to determine best plan 

Housekeeper service 

Placement in own home 

Placement with relatives 

Returning runaway children 

Maternity home care 

Temporary shelter care 

Poster home care 

Admission studies for industrial schools 

Social studies 

For other children the Department arranged:

At the end of the year, children receiving services were living In: 

Their own homes 

The homes of relatives 

Poster homes 

Boarding schools 

Temporary care institutions 

Institutions for physically and mentally handicapped children 

Maternity homes 

Hospitals 



Some child welfare services are provided on a state-wide basis by the 
same workers who are responsible for the Public Assistance work of the Depart- 
ment . Other services are provided by child welfare workers in the 16 counties 
in which Child Welfare units are established. A new unit was opened in Polk 
County during the year . 

CHILDREN BEING ADOPTED 

During the fiscal year the Department completed studies on 1 . 385 petitions 
which had been filed for the adoption of children who had not been placed in the 
home of the petitioners by a licensed child- placing agency . Reports and recom- 
mendations were prepared for circuit courts as required by law . At the close of 
the year 847 petitions were under study or awaiting final disposition by the court. 






I 



LICENSING AND CONSULTATION 

The Department licenses foster homes for its own use and for the use of 
private child- placing agencies. In Dade, Duval, and Orange Counties com- 
mercial boarding homes, maternity homes, and day- care programs are also 
licensed . 

The Department also licenses private institutions and agencies providing 
care for dependent children . The Department provides consultation and works 
closely with agencies and institutions toward the continuous improvement of the 
quality of care provided children. Consultation to groups planning the establish- 
ment of child care or placement programs is regularly available . 

A total of 765 licenses were issued as follows during the fiscal year: 

Foster homes used by the Department 224 

Poster homes used by private child- placing agencies 132 

Commercial boarding homes and day- care programs 384 

Child-placing agencies 6 

Child-caring institutions 14 

Child -caring and child- placing agencies 4 

Maternity homes 1 

JUVENILE COURT STATISTICS 

The 1955 Florida Legislature included mandatory statistical reporting in 
its amendments to the Juvenile Court law and since October 1, 1955, the De- 
partment has had responsibility for administering the reporting plan . Statistical 
cards are furnished courts and are tabulated monthly. During the year a position 
of juvenile court consultant was established to supervise the statistical report- 
ing plan and to offer other services to the courts . 



PERSONNEL 



Despite the fact that the 1955 Florida Legislature appropriated money for 
increased staff and some increase in salaries , finding and retaining staff was 
still the major personnel problem as the fiscal year 1955 - 56 ended. However, 
it is expected that these problems will be alleviated to some extent upon com- 
pletion of a comprehensive classification and compensation survey of the 
agencies which came under the Merit System law enacted by the 1955 Legisla- 
ture. 

By the end of the fiscal year 1955 - 56 the staff had increased from 838 
employees In July 1955 to 987 employees by the end of June 1956 . However, 
during this period separations were at the rate of approximately 24 per month . 

8 



The increase in staff has not yet been sufficient to decrease materially the size 
of the caseloads carried by the social work staff . Until individual caseloads axe 
reduced substantially, the Department cannot fulfill its total responsibility for 
service to its recipients and to the taxpayer. 

While salaries were Increased by 5 percent, the increase in the salaries of 
supervisory and administrative positions, as well as other positions, still did 
not make them comparable to those paid elsewhere, and the Department re- 
mained in an unfavorable competitive position to attract qualified personnel. 

The Department's scholarship program has expanded as the result of legis- 
lative approval of scholarships from state and federal funds for graduate training 
for public assistance staff. Previously only federal child welfare funds were 
available for this purpose. Further expansion of the scholarship program will be 
a major factor in meeting the need for trained social workers . 

Plans have been completed for the inauguration of a long-range recruitment 
project for the profession of social work to try to meet the growing need for per- 
sons to enter this field. 



SURPLUS COMMODITY DISTRIBUTION 

Commodity distribution during the year 1955 - 56 rose to an all-time high 
in terms of dollar value and pounds delivered. Florida's share of the nation- 
wide distribution amounted to 10.8 million pounds with a fair wholesale value 
of almost 3.9 million dollars. Administrative cost of the program continued 
to be less than one cent for each dollar's worth of federally donated commodities 
made available for distribution to eligible recipients . 

The total number of individual persons benefited showed a definite increase 
during the year. This increase amounted to 13.6 percent over the previous 
year. The following table shows the types of agencies and the number of indi- 
viduals in each that participated in the distribution of commodities:
